There's no chance he'll ever read this but please allow me to be the first to welcome Mr. Edison back to the WFMU airwaves after a long long time.

Mr. Edison is illiterate?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:08pm Webhamster Henry:

How about a tribute to Rummy Delbarton?
Avatar 8:08pm Otis Fodder:

I'm both amazed that I found this playlist and that you are alive! Is your phone number still 3 or 5?

Home page still shows the Morricone Island playlist. I got here by looking up Old Codger in the show archive listing...
Avatar 8:09pm Otis Fodder:

That's it. I forget he moved in 1933 and had it changed,
Avatar 8:10pm another old man:

Calm down Courtney.

He's a devil in his own hometown!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm Webhamster Henry:

Here's the WFMU Mr. Edison remembers: freeform.wfmu.org...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:11pm G:

Courtney doesn't do "calm." He doesn't do anything nice and easy -- he does it nice and rough.
Avatar 8:12pm Snortley:

What's that smell? Something burning?
  8:13pm P-90:

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:16pm steveo:

Good to hear you, Codger. Your taste in classical seems to be quite jazzy, but I happily admit I'm enjoying it.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:22pm G:

@Jake: Setting up the online board is not a major part of an old codger's skillset.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:23pm Webhamster Henry:

I'm just glad he's not sending playlists in by passenger pigeon like he used to.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:25pm Miles of Middle Texas:

Avatar 8:25pm Otis Fodder:

He upgraded to Telegraph a couple of years back, still a short way to go.
  8:25pm GC in The Slope:

Folks who like 78s should go by the new Cafe Bohemia on Barrow Street in the west village Mondays 7-11pm.
  8:31pm JakeGould:

Is this a race record?

I may be in the minority here, but: the music is great, some nice finds: however I can so do without the schmaltzy, bad radio voice.
